Solar Eclipse

Student astronomer captures images of solar eclipse

Astronomy has always been a fascinating hobby for Robert Hart, a sophomore mechanical engineering major at Penn State Berks. It was a subject that he enjoyed discussing with his favorite professor, Robert Forrey, distinguished professor of physics. So when Forrey and his family traveled to Hiawassee, Georgia, and rented a cabin to view the recent solar eclipse, he invited Hart to join them.
